Creative Leadership & Fashion Design

The building blocks of my design work are innovation, creativity & dedication to premium quality.

I combine originality with an intuitive understanding of a customer’s brief and have a consistent track record delivering bestselling womenswear for clients such as Marks & Spencer, Windsmoor, Jacques Vert, Oasis, Wallis, Topshop as well as independent retailers.

 

My handwriting is defined by clean understatement and exquisite attention to detail. I specialize in smart and causal outerwear, tailoring & separates.

 

With 15 years industry experience I have a profound understanding of all aspects of the product development process, from key shape & comp shop analysis, range & garment design, CAD factory tech packs through to garment construction. This is paired with an extensive network of fashion & manufacturing related contacts.

 

My creative leadership style is based on clarity in communication and fostering of a highly collaborative culture to inspire a highly motivated & hard working team.

“I have been working with Nina for several years now and it is always a pleasure. She is very quick to understand a brief and produces designs which are commercial and easy to understand by manufacturers. Our collaborations have been very successful where it really matters - on the sales floor.” Beverly Standring, Company Director at LakelandLeather
